  • contextual menus (Score:5, Informative)

    Either BBEdit or Bare Bones' Super Get Info shipped with an "Open With" CMM. When installed, it goes in "Contextual Menu Items" in your "Library" directory (you could probably promote it to the system lib to get it to work for all users). It's called "Bare Bones Open With.plugin". Google searching for other .plugin things might bring satisfaction [google.com].

    If you don't have Bare Bones' open with cmm, and re-running installers isn't giving you that option, then there's a free alternative [brockerhoff.net].

    Searching for cmm at version tracker's MacOS X page [versiontracker.com] might show some that come with source so you could figure out how to do your own.

    > Or select text and choose "CPAN"

    Another way to do this is with services. I don't think you'll be able to control-click, but you can assign keyboard shortcuts, which might be just as handy. This one [gu.st] lets you select text and then search google. It comes with source so you could probably adapt it to have a version that does CPAN instead.
